Lemon BBQ Sauce



This is one of my favorite lemon barbecue sauce recipes because it’s sweet.  The brown sugar and molasses adds that nice sweet taste to make it a sweeter BBQ sauce.  I’m very partial to sweeter tasting BBQ Sauces and the combination of the sweet and sour lemon flavors make this recipe one of my favorites.
